Knowledge for Practice with Transgendered Persons.
Mallon, Gerald P.
Journal of Gay & Lesbian Social Services, v10 n3-4 p1-18 1999
Examines the need for social workers to have appropriate knowledge when working with transgendered persons, examining seven areas from which social work practice is derived: practice wisdom; personal experiences; history and current events; professional literature; research; theoretical and conceptual analyses; and knowledge derived from individual cases. Most social workers are not adequately prepared to work with transgendered persons. (SM)
